Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Very easy to move around. The water neutralizer no longer has sweat on the outer tank No more do I have to open the door to the outside when I use the clothes dryer.

Submitted by Samikins - 9/11/2020

This Frigidaire dehumidifier is the best dehumidifier we ever have had. Too many to count. Even though it is in the laundry room in the lower level of our home it lowered the humidity level 5 degrees in the upper level. Sorry I don't do "pictures" /"videos" to attach. I am 87 years of age and bought my home computer in 2003, but there are some things I haven't learned to do. Our son and daughter-in-law are very pleased with their refrigerator that was bought in 2006.

Don't know yet

Submitted by none that i can thin - 9/11/2020

I bought 2 70 pint units and both got the FO code and were replaced with the 70 pint unit by frigidaire. Both of those replacements also got the FO code and were replaced with this 50 pint unit. I now have 4 bad units that no one wants and are hard to get rid of. Hope these new units out live their predecessors.

An Efficient Unit

Submitted by AeChief - 9/11/2020

This Spring, I bought this unit to replace the one that I had given to my daughter. Even though this one did not have a built-in pump like the previous one, it worked better and was more efficient. I noticed that it consumed less power: it would shut off automatically when humidity reached the desired setting, and would resume as humidity increased. About a month ago, I gave this unit to my daughter and she reports that it is working well to keep the basement dry! I believe this model is an improvement over the previous version.

Fool me twice...

Submitted by Will H - 9/11/2020

This is my third Frigidaire dehumidifier in five years. The first unit failed (F0) after two summers of use. The purchase price was refunded and used to buy another 70 pint model with a fresh warranty. This one also F0™€™d after two Wisconsin summers. This time they did not offer to refund, but instead they sent this newer model which only carries the balance of the warranty from the second unit. It™€™s working fine in its first summer, but my expectations are limited.

TERRIFIC DEHUMIDIFIER

Submitted by JulieDu - 9/11/2020

We bought this a month ago and it has made all the difference in the feel and smell in the basement. Our old one, while still running, was not taking any moisture out of the air. This machine after running constantly for 3 days per instructions, dehumidifies the basement to 45%. We have never had our basement humidity levels that low even when the old dehumidifier was new.

Unbelievable savings

Submitted by Epers22 - 9/10/2020

Had a basement specialist tell me I needed a high tech dehumidifier system to rectify the humidity in my basement at a cost of ONLY $1750. Bought this one on sale for under $200 and it does the job. Also love that I no longer have to empty it. WIN WIN!!!!

Takes the moisture out!

Submitted by Nickphd - 9/10/2020

I have been running the unit for a little over a month now. I ran continuous for a week to get down to 55% humidity. I now have the unit set to 55% and it runs moderately. With winter coming on fast, hope to lower the humidity even more. Unit is fairly quiet. Going to put a watt meter to view cost.

My Basement doesn™€™t smell like a basement anymore

Got this a couple weeks ago after looking at all the good reviews. Works much better than our old dehumidifier which quit working earlier in the summer. I didn™€™t connect the hose so I could see how well it works, after I got home from work the bucket was full, and as the basement dries out it runs less and less

Works better than expected

Submitted by BobCBobC - 9/10/2020

My previous dehumidifer, of similar capacity, could not keep up with the moisture in my large basement. There was always a slight musty smell. This Frigidaire improved the musty odor in one day and after two weeks the basement is dry. The three speed fan allows for a low speed that operates quietly. The filter is easly to remove and clean. I am very pleased with the unit and would have given it 5 stars if I had 12 months of succesful operation completed.

Removes moisture well

Submitted by Repeattttt - 9/9/2020

THE GOOD: well thought out design and construction. Bucket good size and East to remove and empty. Controls East to use. Rings fairly quiet but certainly silent.THE BAD: the manual not very detailed. Lacked most general information but had enough controls info. I contacted the company regarding a couple of questions and received confirmation but I never received any answers. THE UGLY: one of the main reasons I went with this model was because of the ™€œauto™€ feature. The description states that the unit will cycle on and off according to the humidity setting you choose. Well, the compressor may turn off but the blower never turns off and continues to run. This is a waste of electricity, blower wear and you have continuous blower noise. Not happy about this.

Works very well but lacks elegance of other Fridigaire models

Submitted by sk12509 - 9/9/2020

This unit works very well, effectively lowers the humidity to the set value. However, having used other models of Frigidaire before, this one is not as elegant in appearance and performance. It seems to be put together rather cheaply. The handle and grill as well some other parts are made of cheap plastic and loose fitting. Consequently, it is a bit noisier than other models.

Good Design and Works Great.

Submitted by MnL1701 - 9/9/2020

We started off looking for a replacement and while checking reviews found this one was highly praised by an appliance reviewers group. After finding additional reports that had similar praises we reviewed the Frigidaire site. There it was recommended that if needed for a basement get two dehumidifiers. We did and in the first 24 hours pulled 25 gallons out of the air. This unit has the easiest hose attachment I've ever seen. My wife and I agree if we had to do it over we would buy these dehumidifiers again.

Simple to use

Submitted by Architect 1 - 9/8/2020

This unit was provided to as a warranty replacement for a previous design that had some type of an issue. I want to clarify that my original unit was outside the warranty period and Frigidaire still replaced it. I am impressed with a manufacturer that stands behind their product! The replacement unit is simple to operate and is purring away in the basement keeping the air nice and dry. No complaints.

Seems to work

Submitted by Anatoly - 9/8/2020

I put it into the crawlspace, set to "Continuous", operated by a humidistat. It maintains the humidity of my North Carolina humid crawlspace pretty well (I have the drain connected using the garden hose which goes into the "crawlspace drain", taking the condnesation outside.) For reference, my crawlspace is ca 1000sqft and ca 3 feet high, so about 3000 cu ft. I am keeping it at 73% and I know this unit could keep it lower. Without dehumidification, my crawlspace is in the 90s.

Great humidity reduction at a very low noise level.

Submitted by Highly recommend - 9/8/2020

Have had this for a month located in our large finished basement (approx. 1900 sq ft) and it has been incredibly effective w/a very low noise level. My wife works remotely in the basement as is on the phone continually during a working day. She nor her clients can noticebly hear fan or compressor noise. Even during initial setup with settings on low humidity, high fan speed and continual operation. Outstanding.
